Few interior design elements are celebrated and appreciated as much as skylights. These windows to the sky allow warmth and sunlight to stream into homes all over the San Francisco Bay Area. There is a downside to skylights. That same sunlight and warmth can increase glare, affect cooling costs, and increase fading to your interior furnishings. Is there a way to enjoy skylights while minimizing their negative effects? The ClimatePro team has been installing 3M window film on skylights all over the San Francisco Bay Area for over 40 years. In this post, we’ll share 8 of those projects and highlight the window films we’ve used.
Why Skylights Need Window Film
First, let’s talk about the three areas of concern: heat, glare, and fading. The sun’s heat enters your home through direct sunlight and infrared rays. Both can increase internal temperatures and make it harder to keep your home cool.
Glare is another issue the sun creates. It can make using your devices like computers, phones, tablets, and televisions harder. In bathrooms, a popular place for skylights, the sun’s glare can make using mirrors challenging. The eyestrain glare causes can affect your long-term eyesight and has been known to cause headaches.
What about fading? The sun’s UV rays are powerful. They are strong enough to fade flooring and carpeting. The sun’s UV rays can greatly impact artwork, reducing colors and breaking down paint. They may be invisible, but UV rays can really cause damage.
3M Window Film is designed to tackle all 3 of these issues, making it a great choice for skylights. We’ve applied various films to skylights in kitchens, living rooms, bathrooms, and other places. The same films can be applied to office skylights.
